Family is an important part of society. It helps in the upbringing of an individual, enhancing one’s culture, and contributing to the greater good of the society in a broad sense. The Global Family Day aims to promote multiculturalism, pluralism, and how people of a different race, sex, gender, religion etc. can co-exist with each other in peace and harmony.

 The Global Family Day aims to promote the idea of the earth being ‘One Global Family’ and how should we live together without any discrimination. It looks to raise awareness amongst people to look beyond the barriers of religions, castes, and cultures. It makes one ponder on how one should put humanity ahead of every other parameter.

 Since January 1 is the first day of the Gregorian calendar year, the observance of Global Family Day also signals how good things should begin from the very first day. You should co-exist, live, and participate in world activities together and not on other aspects.

The Global Family Day is not just about ‘One Global Family’. It also highlights the importance of an individual family and its members, and how they become each other’s support in trying times. Family is a very important thing in one’s life. One cannot deny this simple fact. The Global Family Day celebrates this significance on the very first day, signalling how the family comes first and everything after that.
